A 256-TES Array for the Detection of CMB B-Mode Polarisation

Abstract : As part of the Q&U Bolometric Interferometer for Cosmology instrument targeting the cosmic microwave background primordial B-modes, two kilo-pixel focal planes have been designed for a NEP of W adapted for ground-based observations. Those pixels are transition edge sensors (TESs) made of voltage-biased NbSi thin films with a critical temperature 400 mK and TiV absorbing grids. The TESs are coupled to a time-domain multiplexed electronics based on superconducting quantum interference devices and an additional SiGe cryogenic integrated circuit which provides a second multiplexing stage. In this paper, we briefly discuss the instrumental context of a quarter of focal plane (a 256-TES sub-array). Then, we present its typical manufacturing process and first test results at cryogenic temperature.
